- Dear xx
- RE: Consent, ESA50 and my Work Capability Assessment (WCA)
- I write to confirm that I do not agree to my or any doctor being informed of any determination related to:
- 1. limited capability for work
- 2. limited capability for work-related activity
- I make this request under the Data Protection Act (1998), as you require my explicit and informed consent
- to share said determination with my or any Doctor/GP, as it is my sensitive personal data.
- Please write to me to acknowledge this decision not to share the determination with with my or any Doctor/GP.
- On your ESA50 form, a copy of which I have retained, I have removed/striked-out the part of my signed declaration that
- "I agree to my doctor or any doctor treating me,
- being informed about the Secretary of State's
- determination on
- – limited capability for work
- – limited capability for work-related activity, or
- – both"
- During any actual WCA I will provide the assessor with a copy of this letter and the signed declaration page of the ESA50 form.
- Consent and sharing sensitive personal data
- “How can benefit claimants found fit for or limited capability for work remove permission to inform their
- GP of the WCA outcome and how can they do so before the WCA? If the claimant wants to send a
- letter removing consent to inform GP of outcome, who should they write to?”
- If a benefit claimant wishes to withdraw consent to inform a GP of the outcome of a Work
- Capability Assessment they need to write to the Benefit Centre that deals with their benefit
- What conditions need to be met in respect of sensitive personal data?
- The individual whom the sensitive personal data is about has given explicit consent to the processing.
